La Jolla Concours d' Elegance ... Rubies on the Grass

This is one of the "big boy" shows on the Concours schedule here in So-Cal. So guys leave the sweatshirts at home and break out the classic Ray-Bans, straight leg jeans, white tees, fitted leather bomber jackets and loafers by Scarpe Di Bianco ala James Dean, with your best girl on your arm to check out the machinery.

This is one of the few concours that I know of that honors not only the cars, but the restoration shops and restorers that perform their magic on the metal. All of this plays out in one of the most beautiful settings on the west coast...La Jolla's Ellen Browning Scripps Park.

The date for the show is this Sunday, April 1st, the weather looks like it's gonna' be dynamite and the waves big to rock the good vibes on the grass.

As a side note, this year, several blog followers have entered their rides; Skip and Leslie Shirley, Steve and Araceli Lopez, Tom and Bev Gould, Dale and Lorena Sommerfeld. John Bessey will bring an MGC/GTS and Donn Vickrey will be showing his radical Shelby King Cobra. Remember, this is not an event to be there!
